Raining on Parades

The rains of the last week have affected many of the Christmas parades in the area. Marching bands are disappointed that they cannot participate, but other parade floats could still run. Santa Claus was prepared here for the Travelers Rest Christmas parade by an umbrella and plastic covering for the suit.

The “Joel Poinsett” statue stoically survives the rainy weather. The rain was badly needed after a dry spell, but the weekend forecast calls for enough rain that may cause more floods in the Upstate area. Many weekend events and festivals have closed due to a high chance of dangerous road flooding with moisture being brought in by the Atlantic storm Joaquin (but no serious winds forecast).
